Abstract

Mangrove plants have great economical and medicinal values and most importantly they offer unique ecological services. Three very important ecological services include: (a) nursery for fish, crabs, prawns and other fauna; (b) protection of erosion of shoreline; (c) carbon dynamics including fixation, storage and export. This review critically evaluates these roles based on modern research work performed in different corners of the globe. It is undisputed that mangrove forests do offer many ecological services. But the extent and magnitude of such ecosystem performances vary depending on many factors. Some of which are its bio geographical location, degree of disturbance due to urbanization, aquaculture, tourism, diversity and richness of flora and fauna, hydrological regimes, climatic parameters (temperature, rainfall, tropical storm etc.), and even the nature of adjoining habitats etc. It is also evident that habitat destruction due to urbanization, excessive aquaculture, tourism is the major threat to mangrove ecosystem itself and thereby to the ecological services they provide. The focus of such ecological evaluation must include recent impacts of global warming and climate change on mangrove ecosystem and the services it provide.
